T In The Park 2011 festival-goers are being warned about ecstasy that is reportedly six times the strength of normal pills.

Although no deaths have been reported at the event itself, bad batches of tablets have been linked to fatalities in Glasgow and Ayr, reports the NME.

Ch Supt Craig Suttie, event commander for the festival, said: “We are aware of [an] ecstasy tablet that is being pedaled in certain parts of Scotland that is reported to be six times the strength of other ecstasy pills.

“Clearly, anyone who takes such a drug is dicing with death. Indeed, anyone who takes drugs can have no inkling of what its strength is or what other chemicals it might contain. Please listen to the advice and avoid drugs altogether.”

Arctic Monkeys wowed with a headline performance at T In The Park 2011 last night (Friday), while N-Dubz are among the acts to have performed already today (Saturday).

Coldplay and Beyonce are among the acts on the T In The Park 2011 line-up today.
